Best Varicose Vein Treatment Video

Varicose veins are large blood vessels that protrude out of the surface of the skin and they look like dense twisted rope-like knots or tree trunks. They look pretty hideous and they’re also accompanied by a number of other conditions such as skin diseases, swollen ankles and legs, skin discoloration, and others.

If you have spider veins or varicose veins on your skin, you must be wondering how to get rid of them. You may even be afraid of the varicose vein treatments, fearing that they may be painful or complicated. In the past, varicose veins could only be treated with complex surgical procedures that required the patient to be hospitalized and cut into.

Thankfully, because of modern technology and modern medicine, varicose vein treatment is actually pretty simple to execute. In fact, modern varicose vein treatments are minimally-invasive, non-surgical, and they generally conclude within an hour. In this article, we’ll give you a detailed overview of the best varicose vein treatments along with varicose vein treatment video so you’re mentally prepared for the procedure.

Importance of Varicose Vein Treatment

To understand why varicose vein treatment is important, it’s important to understand what causes varicose veins and the consequences of leaving it untreated.

Varicose veins are caused by a circulatory disorder known as chronic venous insufficiency in which your vein valves collapse, causing your blood to flow back and pool around the leg veins. The added pressure of accumulated blood leads to vein dilation, which eventually causes your veins to bulge outwards in the form of varicose veins.

Chronic venous insufficiency is an extremely dangerous condition and you should treat it as soon as you notice the first warning signs. Some of the initial signs of vein disease include heaviness of legs, restless legs syndrome, frequent leg cramps, and the formation of spider veins and varicose veins.

If you don’t treat vein disease or varicose veins in time, you can suffer from the following consequences:

  • Swollen ankles and feet due to blood accumulation in the legs.
  • Skin discoloration due to poor blood circulation.
  • Varicose veins are basically swollen and dilated blood vessels. As such, they’re extremely sensitive and the tiniest bumps or scratches can burst varicose veins, which will lead to unstoppable bleeding and you’ll have to be taken to the emergency room.
  • Formation of leg ulcers, i.e., non-healing wounds on the surface of your skin, because of poor blood circulation which prevents wounds from healing.
  • Formation of blood clots inside the veins, which is a condition known as deep vein thrombosis.
  • If the blood clots inside your veins break away, they may travel to your lungs and induce pulmonary embolism. This can be fatal.

As you can see, varicose vein treatment is crucial and you shouldn’t delay it under any circumstances.

Radiofrequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation is the leading varicose vein treatment available. This is a procedure in which the vein doctor creates an incision on the surface of your skin and inserts a catheter into the diseased saphenous vein under ultrasound guidance. Once the catheter is located in the right place, the vein doctor passes heat energy to the walls of the saphenous vein. This irritates the vein walls and causes them to collapse, allowing the accumulated blood to reroute to healthier veins. Over time, the collapsed vein hardens and gets reabsorbed by the body.

The entire radiofrequency ablation procedure concludes within an hour. It’s minimally invasive, non-surgical, causes little to no pain since it’s done under anesthesia, and there’s no significant downtime. Radiofrequency ablation is also covered by insurance since it’s a medically necessary procedure.

Endovenous Laser Ablation

Endovenous laser ablation is another highly effective varicose vein treatment. This is a procedure in which the vein doctor will create an incision on your skin to insert a catheter along with a laser fiber. Once the catheter is lodged within the diseased saphenous vein, the vein doctor will trigger the laser fiber to generate laser energy and destroy the affected saphenous vein. This will cause blood to flow to healthier veins.

Endovenous laser ablation is just as effective as radiofrequency ablation, but it causes a little more post procedural discomfort so it’s not the favored option. However, laser ablation treatment also concludes within an hour, can be conducted in-office, and is non-surgical in nature.

VenaSeal

VenaSeal is a fairly simple varicose vein treatment. The vein doctor simply injects a medical adhesive into the problematic saphenous vein to seal its walls shut and restore blood circulation to healthier veins.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a procedure that can only remove the superficial varicose veins from the surface of your skin after the primary treatment is done. The vein doctor creates incisions on your skin and physically removes the superficial varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy Treating Spider Veins on the Legs

Sclerotherapy is the best procedure to treat spider veins or superficial varicose veins. This procedure can’t treat venous insufficiency but it’s an effective procedure to improve the general appearance of your skin after the main procedure concludes. During this procedure, the vein doctor simply injects a sclerosant solution into your spider veins to seal them shut and restore healthy blood circulation.
